Welcome to the website of St Peter’s Cathedral, Adelaide.

The Fourth Sunday in Advent - Sunday 21 December 2014

Welcome : “In the sixth month the angel…” These evocative words mark the beginning of Mary’s story and the start of Luke’s nativity narrative. As we listen to them on the fourth Sunday of Advent they remind us of a young woman who said “Yes” to God. It is a brave, some would say naïve, thing to do – saying yes to God. That is what Christians are called to do: to say yes and then go out and make a difference to the world. Mother Teresa encouraged her sisters to ‘do something beautiful for God today.’

 We need lots of beautiful things in our country reeling after last Monday’s tragedy in Sydney. The ‘I’ll ride with you’ hashtag is one such, intentionally reaching out to people different to us and embracing them as part of the human race. This surely is part of the message we will celebrate in the birth of the Prince of Peace.

O come, O come, Emmanuel,
and ransom captive Israel,
that mourns in lonely exile here,
until the Son of God appear:
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
shall come to thee, O Israel.

 Welcome to all who long for Emmanuel to come again, as we gather to worship him.

Thr Very Rev'd Frank Nelson
